tv CNN Newsroom With Brooke Baldwin CNN April 28, 2016 11:00am-1:01pm PDT
for watching. i'll be back 5:00 p.m. eastern in "the situation room." "newsroom" with brooke bald wwi starts right now. thank you, wolf blitzer. hi there. i'm brooke baldwin. you're watching cnn. we begin with signs that the cold shoulder toward donald trump is beginning to thaw. former republican house speaker john boehner reportedly told a crowd at sanford university he would vote for donald trump if he were to become the republican nominee but as the former speaker apparently warming up to trump, by the way, he said they're texting friends for years, he is hurling fire at another man being ted cruz. boehner said he would not support cruz as the nominee. and he went further than that. listen to boehner's reaction
when asked what he thought of this texas senator, boehner made a face and then he said this. quote, lucifer in the flesh. i have democrat friends and republican friends. i get along with almost everyone. but i have never worked with a more miserable of a bleep in my life. minutes ago, donald trump seized upon boehner's ire. >> if cruz sneezes, if he just sneezes, his people leave him. believe me. no loyalty. nobody -- who can listen to him? in the senate he's known as a liar. marco rubio, who's a good guy, called him a liar in the debate. remember that? when another senator can call a senator a liar, i said now i can do it also. it's great. we came up with lyin' ted.
hyphen. >> maybe an apos to fe. talking about more and more republicans, not just john boehner, republicans warming up to the idea of donald trump as the nominee. perhaps president. >> reporter: brooke, i think that's right. i think for some republicans a feeling of resignation. for others a feeling of acceptance. you have to bring in when you talk about the comments john boehner made, the ire he feels, there are people in the senate feeling like ted cruz kind of came in with the wrong attitude and without of his way not to make friends and the kind of thing hampering the campaign. for donald trump, his campaign has really worked to open this new chapter, to open office in washington, d.c., to start doing outreach on the hill and right here in indiana, donald trump saying he got off the phone with senator bob corker, very complimentary about trump's foreign speech yesterday and even as he rails against the establishment, saying it's
rigged system, trying to make inroads here and i think a signal of a candidate believes he's a presumptive nominee and believes he will be the guy in november. brooke? >> i'll let you tune in to donald trump. thank you so much for now. you know, ted cruz has certainly responded today to john boehner's reference as lucifer and wore the insult like a badge of honor he says it proves cruz is not washington insider. >> he allowed his inner trump to come out. you know? i will say this. if you're woone who has actuall stood up to washington, i think john boehner made it crystal clear, john boehner in his remarks described donald trump as his texting and golfing buddy. donald trump has been funding john boehner and funding nancy pelosi and harry reid. if you like what john boehner, nancy pelosi and harry reid have done, donald trump is your guy.
and actually boehner's remarks reveal everything wrong and corrupt with washington. >> let's bring in talk radio host steve dais and republican strategist mindy fin, she is part of the never trump movement and commentator kayly mcanani. welcome to all of you. kayly, just listening to donald trump just now, the boehner stuff in a minute, again doubling down on what he said last night, slamming lying ted, but what interested me is he didn't go after carly fiorina specifically an i'm wondering is this because of what he said once upon a time about her face, two nights ago about the woman's card? what's that about? >> i think it's a wise move not to attack carly fiorina giving bait to the other side. here donald trump has won, trounced cruz and won in new york. why hand a softball to take and run with? very smart move and to double
down on the critique of lying cruz is i think also smart and a brilliant move to say, hey, you called mitch mcconnell a liar. why can't i use the same word to dub what i think you have done to me? >> mindy, to you, speaker boehner, we haven't heard from him in a while. i don't know if he's in hiding but this is the moment, four days before this mega primary next tuesday. indiana, calling, you know, ted cruz lucifer in the flesh. this cannot have been a coincidence, the timing. what do you think? >> yeah. well, it's no surprise. and this isn't new that washington insiders and washington house, senate, ted cruz is not particularly popular. it's one of the reasons that he remains in this race and others that were seen as more establishment failed, fallen down. yet donald trump is the one who's been able to play into voters' ire and anger at the establishment. the fact they're tired of
politics as usual and starting to see the new donald trump. you might say the real donald trump come out which is the one a party donor if a long time, before that, friends with the clintons. there's a famous picture of donald trump or the clintons at donald trump's wedding. so i think that what we start to see and ted cruz smartly playing it to his advantage is if voters are looking for that outsider, the person who does ruffle the feathers and anger washington insiders and politics as usual, that's ted cruz and see it playing out in realtime right now. >> do you agree, steve? cruz is your guy. do you think, you know, how he's pivoting and turning it into a positive, well, all right, if you want to be a washington insider and reed and pelosi and boehner that's your guy an i'm from the outside. is that the plan for him? >> brooke, if team cruz does not have a crying boehner endorsement on the air somewhere
in indiana -- >> crying boehner. >> i don't want to live in this world anymore, brooke! this is a gift from god. this endorsement. between yesterday we got the endorsement of planned parenthood with the if i rhee that and cruz ticket. today, the establishment said here's the guy we hate, ted cruz. here oes the guy that helped put us all in office, donald trump. so this is the kind of branding you are looking for. these are the droids you're looking for right here, brooke. this is what you want. >> kayly, you agree? >> not at all, steve. here's the thing. this is not about endorsements. i look to actions and what i see is donald trump stood up for the people of colorado to have a vote. donald trump tried to enfranchise people for a greater voice and in contrast to ted cruz and willingly good against the people of colorado, willingly playing the delegate game to take the people's will out of the game.
that's what they do. throw out the popular vote and will of the people and put themselves first. that's what ted cruz is doing. >> i'd like to respond to that. >> please do. >> kayly, i don't know you. seriously, do you have any integrity at all? >> oh, ouch. come on, steve. >> national television. you know 65,000 people -- i am keeping it professional. she's the one lying. 65,000 people voted in colorado. at this thing called a caucus, called an election. there is no voterless elections. every delegate is elected. including pennsylvania. this is the biggest lie and the biggest scam from a guy that lied repeatedly in the entire campaign and whose campaign is built on a lie. i'm mr. anti-establishment writing the guys checks. yesterday mr. trump defending ditch mcconnell. today he's taking john boehner. millions of people watch people like you sit here on these shows
and the rest of this kabal of advisers who just sit here and fete this guy and lie for him every single day and millions of personals are freaking just sick of it. stop lying! there wasn't a voterless election in colorado! you're a liar! stop lying, please. >> wow, wow. hang on a second. hang on a second. no ones anyone a liar. with all due respect. the deal in colorado is yes, you are correct. people vote. someone wanted to be a delegate. >> she lied! she lied if i'm correct! >> steve! >> if i'm correct, she lied. >> kayly? >> why is that bad? >> it's the last line of defense and the facts not on your side. it's a fact that colorado canceled the presidential preference poll in august. yes, resorted to a four-tier caucus system with the intent of disenfranchising the voters and colorado announced last week
that they would -- let me finish, steve. i sat here patiently. >> you can't disenfranchise voters when they vote! >> i let you finish. one more sentence if you can tolerate it. it's a verifiable fact that last week colorado announced to bring back the primary next year. >> probably not. >> all of those are facts. i hope someone fact checks this segment. >> mindy? >> donald trump wants people to believe that the election is over. after new york, he tried to make that statement after the primary and it's quite clear it is not over. then john boehner wouldn't be trying to throw cold war all over ted cruz's candidacy. this election is alive and why indiana is important. a big part of the message is what they will be fighting over is who really is the outsider. who's the one that's going to bring that disruption and change the fact that the voters see that the system is rigged? as we head into november. and that's what the fight will come down to in indiana and hear in the rhetoric as both ted cruz
campaign and donald trump kind of fight it out to the end. >> exactly right. i appreciate the passion from both sides. this thing is not a done deal on either side. cruz or even trump. trump is only one to technically get to 1,237. he may not do it. ted cruz obviously hoping it gets to a contested convention. final question, mindy, the fact that manu and others referenced to establishment -- i don't know what establishment is anymore. these republicans ala bob corker warming to the ideas of donald trump. how do you read into that? >> well, sometimes you have to deal with the hand that you're dealt. and at this point, after a long -- >> is that what this is? >> long time of denial here he is. so they're trying to make the best of a not great situation. and i think they're going to try to conveniently forget some of the commentary of the past and how poorly he is doing with women and minorities and think they can salvage it but looking
at a donald trump and hillary clinton matchup, they're not going to go with hillary clinton and just trying to make peace with the hand they're dealt. >> indiana. next tuesday. we should all reconvene. steve, mindy, kayly, i appreciate it. thank you so much here on politics today. meantime, new information, new details about prince's final hours. sources now telling cnn what was found on not only prince but in his home in minnesota, also word of a potential overdose days before his death. plus, breaking news in the case of san bernardino terrorists. we are getting word arrests had just been made including one of the killer's brothers. hear why. and jeb bush giving his very first interview since dropping out of the race. hear what he has to say about ted cruz, donald trump and whether he would ever run again. what a day it is on this thursday. your heart loves omega-3s.
but the omega-3s in fish oil differ from megared krill oil. unlike fish oil, megared is easily absorbed by your body. megared. the difference is easy to absorb. the possibility of a flare was almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common,
we are learning today more about prince's death one week ago today inside of his paisley park studio. law enforcement source reveals to cnn there were prescription pain medications specifically opioide pills found on the music icon found in the elevator at the time of the death as well as somewhere within his paisley park home. we also know federal drug enforcement agent dea in there part of the investigation. meantime, the health scare that prompted that emergency plane landing just about a week before that prince was on that plane, investigators now believe it was because of the bad reaction to pain medication. law enforcement source says prince was unresponsive when the private plane landed. and then six days later he was pronounced dead. with me, david kaviaki and host of "dead lly sins" and joins me
and worked with heather hayes, an interventionist with more than 30 years working with ace diction and disorder and a criminal profiler so welcome to both of you. and, you know, let's just be clear off the top. there's so much we don't know so nobody's going to jump to conclusions here and focus on the facts and the facts are the opioide meds found on him and in his house and treated, unresponsive on the plane and made that emergency landing. what, darren, to you first, tell you and what exactly is an opioide? >> well, when we're talking about opioids, it's a class of drugs that frankly it's the drug most closely related to it is heroin. we're talk ugh about the opioide family of medication and what's so dangerous and so glad we're having this conversation,
brooke, addiction is costing americans over $700 billion a year. it's a massive, massive problem. and the number of cases that i've personally worked with, where people have started off seeking treatment because of a legitimate medical problem an it's blossomed into full blown addiction, it's a very, very common scenario. >> so, beyond heroin, heather, what else could an opioide -- what else could someone be taking? >> any of the pain pills, percodan, oxycontin, percocet, and mostly given for pain and very addictive and overdose potential is very high. >> how does one -- i mean, we have talked about this so much in the past here, but how does one get addicted to one of these meds? how quickly can that happen?
>> oh, it can happen incredibly quickly, brooke. and what the problem really becomes is one of tolerance where because somebody is taking a particular dose, the body will become acclimated to that particular dose and the person requires more and more of the drug in order to get relief. and what ultimately can happen is that the addiction part demands more and more of that substance. like a drowning person needs air. but, unfortunately, the body's physical organs just can't keep up with that pace and that's where we get into a potential fatal overdose situation. >> heather, when about the fact that we know that the plane made the emergency landing, we know he was unresponsive. he had to be revived. when paramedics rush, what would they have done? >> they would have given a
medication called narcan and stops the opioids working and brings the person out of the jo overdose so the vital signs pick up and it's a short, short fix. so what would have needed to have happened would have then been time for prince to get treatment. you know, addiction and when we have overdoses, that's a call for action and what we're seeing here is there was a huge opportunity. he had an overdose. we were aware that it had happened and that would have been the time to then after that come in and really get him some help. just because you treat an overdose doesn't mean you have treated the addiction and people are more likely if they don't get the proper withdrawal off to overdose again. >> is it even possible -- let me ask this. he was a jehovah's witness and i think that means you wouldn't take a blood transfusion and he could say no to hip surgery. hip issues.
one could think you're doing the right thing taking some pain meds and not thinking anything nefarious. i don't know. i guess i'm just trying to wrap my head around what's possible. darren, go ahead. what were you going to say? >> that, unfortunately, with people that are celebrities and high net worth individuals they're oftentimes in the aftermath of let's say that plane experience where there was an overdose, there's often a -- they're surrounded by people who -- who won't -- who aren't supportive of the kind of treatment that heather was describing. and we see this play out over and over and over again. and in terms of what you're trying to wrap your head around, brooke, quite simply people prescribed the drugs for a legitimate medical purposes, it just plays out so frequently
where they become tolerant and take more and more and more of the drug to achieve the relief from the pain but, unfortunately, the body just can't take it anymore. >> hmm. i know it's still a couple of weeks potentially for the toxicology reports to come out. we'll continue the conversation then again. we don't know so much. thank you both very, very much. >> thank you. >> thanks. coming up next, breaking news. three people with connections to the san bernardino terrorists arrested by federal agents. what they're accused of doing. we have a live report on that next. plus, more breaking news. situation in baltimore. police responding to a call that a man with a possible explosive vest has walked into a local tv station there. more on that next.

back to breaking news. the brother of the man behind the isis inspired terror attack on u.s. soil is arrested. we're talking about the murders in san bernardino. the husband and wife who left their baby at home while they opened fire on a holiday party killing 14 people. let's go to our reporter. >> reporter: they're connected to the couple. we need to be very clear as we explain this story, brooke, these are not terrorism charges. the charges are not directly connected to the shooting on december 2nd. what they are is as the fbi was investigating the shooting itself, on december 2nd, they
came across enrique marquez, he was arrested and indicted for material support to terrorism. as they were looking at him, they discovered that he was in a sham marriage. a marriage that was arranged by the brother of farook. he arranged this sham marriage and so the charges today, the indictment rolled out by the feds, are tertiary. they're part of the investigation. but they're not directly as a result of that december 2nd shooting. so we need to be very clear about that. the charges they're facing, marriage fraud, conspiracy, lying about it. the brother of the gunman arrested, that is the brother, his wife and then the woman who had the arranged marriage to enrique marquez. little confusing and tesh rare charges. very serious. brooke? >> we were wondering how these two came together and now
officially we know it was a sham. kyung lah, thank you very much. don't know a lot out of baltimore but police responded to a call that a man walked inside one of the local tv station there is in baltimore. they're not quite sure if the vest he's wearing could be strapped with explosives or not but i can tell you that brian seltzer just arrived on the scene. we'll find out more on the other side of this commercial break. the pursuit of healthier. it begins from the second we're born. because, healthier doesn't happen all by itself. it needs to be earned every day. using wellness to keep away illness. and believing a single life can be made better by millions of others. as a health services and innovation company

a call came in to police in baltimore. apparently from staff from someone at fox 45, a local tv station there in baltimore saying a man is inside the tv station's lobby and the person apparently claimed he had a bomb strapped to him. that's what we know. our senior media correspondent happens to be in this part of the country. he's now rushed to just outside of the station for us. so he's on the phone. i also have cnn law enforcement analyst art roderick with me, as well. brian, to you first, what do you know? >> reporter: strange scene out here, brooke. with employees of the station all evacuated. they're on the street trying the find out what's going on inside their own building and how to get on the air. they're periscoping. there's a police helicopter overhead and the cordon is expanding. i have seen some bomb squad technicians here and part of baltimore tv hill, many of the local stations are.
when this all began there was a man who entered this vestibule area of the lobby. apparently still inside there right now and we can almost see inside the door but not quite. there's also a car in the parking lot. strangely enough, lit on fire. right now, the hood and trunk is open and safe to assume it was related. not clear what happened first and second. right now, a lot of police officers here and a lot of employees waiting to find out what will happen. >> i want to let you go and gather a bit more information and then get you back on tv and try to explain whetherat's happ as fox 45 employees evacuated. we'll come back to this and talk about how we got a glimpse of how donald trump might handle foreign policy if he's the next president of the united states and makes for interesting comparisons with hillary clinton. in what he billed as a major
speech in washington. republican front-runner again called for a bigger military and also said the u.s. should be less involved on the world stage. compare that to what the former secretary of state has said who has a history of being more interventionist. donald trump says the focus needs to change. >> we're rebuilding other countries while weakening our own. we're getting out of the nation building business and, instead, focusing on creating stability in the world. our moments of greatest strength came when politics ended at the water's edge. >> meanwhile, secretary clinton has supported rebuilding efforts of libya and iraq. let's bring in "the new york times" white house correspondent mark landler, author of "alter e e egos." and a huge piece this past weekend in "the times" magazine. you watch the speech yesterday.
let's begin there. your initial impression was what? >> well, aside from the obvious one which was his attempt to be serious and sober and delivered in the classic washington setting and i think he was trying to take a lot of the ideas he's thrown out in this kind of helter-skelter way and put them into a kind of a coherent framework. but it was a framework filled with contradictions. he talked about doing back to a foreign policy that was as coherent as what we had in the cold war and same time basically supports dismantling a lot of cold war alliances in europe or asia. he talks about being more predictable with the allies but at the same time in the battle against isis, he says we should be unpredictable and not tell anyone what we plan to do so it was a speech with a lot of paradoxes and it kind of as you said earlier sets up an interesting -- >> let's goat that.
>> emerge with him. >> let's get to that. on the hawkishness, how would they compare? >> well, i would argue that if you get past the rhetoric and donald trump has very hot rhetoric but if you look at what he said in that speech, he'd be fairly cautious and fairly reluctant to commit the american military. hillary clinton is, you know, i think more ready to do that. i don't want to suggest that she doesn't want to use diplomacy first and that the military's a last resort for her but look at the role she took in the obama years, whether the debate is over libya, arming the rebels in syria, deploying troops in afghanistan, she's tended consistently toward the hawkish end of the spectrum and might see a really interesting role reversal where you have a hawkish democrat facing off against a reluctant republican. >> how unusual is that, mark? >> well, i mean, the general model in american elections is that the republican runs as a hard line national security
figure trying to paint the democrat as a hawk. that's certainly the way mitt romney ran against president obama in the last election and the way john mccain ran against barack obama eight years ago. hillary clinton comes from a traditional interventionist background and not the first democrat with the views she does. when's unusual about this year is whether it's donald trump or even, frankly, ted cruz who we haven't talked about, these are republicans that are well outside the republican national security mainstream. >> okay. mark landler, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> thank you. i want to get back to baltimore. thank you. police responding to a call from a local tv station there. the man with what he claimed was a bomb, an explosive vest. walked in to the local tv station and the staff has been

"nothing left unsaid." here's a look. >> this is what he looked like when you first met him? >> well, it's a terrible photograph of him. but he was 63 when i first met him and married him. >> and was it something -- like as soon as you saw him you thought -- >> instant. >> really? >> knew him for a week and married three weeks later. >> really? >> yeah. >> i didn't know that. >> how old were you? >> 20. >> you were 20? >> yeah. >> he was 63? >> yeah. >> wow. did any of your friends think it was weird? >> i don't know. i mean -- >> they didn't say anything? >> didn't matter to me. >> and anderson's here with us. con garage ligss on this incredible story. >> thanks. >> we see you, we know you as a journalist and tell other people's stories. >> right. >> why did you want to do this? >> i think my mom is a
fascinating character. she is somebody when's been really famous longer than just anybody else alive today. she is 92. she was the center of a custody dispute. most closely followed trial of the century until really the o.j. trial probably and, you know, she just -- the person she actually is is so different than the public perception of her or people hear her name and think her life must be like. >> i have heard you tell stories of characters in your home as a child. >> right. >> but i'm curious knowing your mom and knowing her story pre-anderson. >> right. >> is there a time or era or year or experience that you wish you could almost sort of time travel and relive? >> she lived so many -- she has lived so many different lives. >> seems like. >> she's been an actress and artist and writer and designer and, you know, and so, the person i see in some of the photographs i don't have much sense of and so it was really
through this that i discovered who she is and i kind of now know who she is and what her life was like and the same thing with writing this book "the rainbow comes and goes." like discovered a new person and i hope the film and book encouraged people to do the same with their parents before it's too late. >> can you tell us a story of -- >> i'm going through sort of what the basis of the film is going through the boxes of hers in storage for years and going through them for years and years, more than a decade. open one up, a chandelier and another it's a box of corn flakes from 1953 packed away and been, you know -- >> corn lakes? >> another is a box of letters of marlon brando or frank sinatra, people she was involved with. i had no idea about any of that. just to sort of discover your parent and discover this whole, you know, these multiple lives that they have had is fascinating. >> when in your life do you pick
up the phone and something happens good, bad, sad and your mom is the first person you call? >> rarely. >> really? >> yeah. it is not -- we don't -- we communicate on e-mail now a lot and wrote this -- >> she's 92 and e-mails? >> oh yeah. in fact, we wrote it on e-mail. it's an e-mail conversation. that's what it is. but she's not the kind of person -- she rarely calls me. she watches me on tv every night and sometimes i call -- >> text you on tv? my mom does on occasion. >> called her and be like, do you want me to come over? i haven't seen you in two months. i see you every night. that's the benefit of being on tv. the parent feels like they' you. >> we don't feel the same way around way around. when's one way you wish you were like your mom? >> she has the optimism. she is the most youthful and modern person i know and even the title of the book "the rainbow comes and goes" and from
a woodsworth poem, she believes the rainbow will always return. wait for it. and happy days are right around the corner. the phone can ring and your life can change. i think the phone can ring and the whole life can change and not for the better and sure the rainbow may come back but how do you know you're there where it comes back? might be coming back over in atlanta and we're in new york. i want to prepare for the dark times ahead. i'm like from the "game of thrones" winter is coming in my world. but i wish i had her optimism. >> i love that. 92 and still looking for love. >> i said, you believe there's a guy waiting off the coast of south of france for you in a boat. she was like, a boat? a yacht. you know? i was like -- >> good luck, mom. >> yes. >> you never know. i remember reading dispatches from the edge before i met you and working somewhere else and talk about just reading about your brother. >> right. >> and this -- the whole piece
in this documentary and your mom talks about she hadn't cried since -- >> yeah. my mom witnessed the suicide. trying to stop him. and she -- you know, when it happened. >> how old were you? >> 21. he was 23. my mom says in the film she sort of basically went to bed for three weeks and cried and that she really hasn't cried since. >> how does that impact her still? >> you know, it is there every day. never goes away. for both of us. that's the thing of suicide. a, so few people talk about it that there's this sort of strange silence about it. and stigma still, unfortunately, about it in many people's minds and for those who have lost a loved one to it, it never goes away. often changes -- you end up thinking about how they ended their life opposed to lived their life and a horrible thing to try to remember how somebody lived their life and not just how it ended. >> i have heard you say before people talk about closure. >> that's a tv word. >> i agree with you. >> a reporter says does it bring
you closure, i think the wounds heal. heal over. and but they remain. the scars remain. whether or not people see them. >> mother's day is around the corner. >> yes. >> you can e-mail and text as much as you want. what's -- do you have plans with her? >> on actual holidays, i'll -- >> brunch action in the city? >> no. she paints every day. usually just hang out at the house and what i wanted the film to be like. the way i know my mom which is you go to her house. she's not wearing any makeup. barefoot. >> gold shoes. >> maybe. but bare fat onfoot on a couch telling you incredible stories and people see in the film in a way never before. >> what a way you open up and she opens up. thank you. i appreciate it. tune in "nothing left unsaid" the name on cnn tomorrow night. thank you very much. next, we have more on our

we begin this hour with breaking news. watching cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. watching a potentially dangerous situation right now in baltimore. this tv news station. local tv station, fox 45. i can tell you just a couple of things. that the staff is evacuated. as this man apparently sitting inside the tv station's lobby claiming he has a bomb strapped to him. so, we have brian stelter in the midst of the evacuated employees outside of the tv station and i have cnn law enforcement analyst art roderick with me. brian, to you first. everyone's still evacuated and i understand the only person still inside the tv station is this guy sitting in the lobby. correct? >> reporter: that's right. even the people in master control who would be making sure the show gets on the air at 3:00
p.m., they're not there. i won't describe police movements but we're moved back. there's employees and bystanders standing to see what happens. the man apparently drove up in a car, parked and the car lit on fire in some manner. it wasn't a big fire but fire officials had to put out the fire. then he went in to the lobby, confronted a security guard and said he had a tape to show and when the building was evacuated. we don't know much more than that unfortunately at the moment. a couple of reporters told me it's taken seriously by station management and why everybody left the building right away an now this is a wait and see situation. >> stand by. art, again, confirming of baltimore pd, everyone is evacuated. only person in the station is this individual in the lobby. appears to be wearing a vest. you saw the police chopper high in the air. art, how do law enforcement respond to this?
>> well, i mean, you have to assume what he says he's got on him. law enforcement is assuming that he does have a bomb strapped to his chest. it's great that they have evacuated the tv station. i'm sure they're probably pushing the perimeter back even further sounds like from brian's reporting making perimeter wider and evacuating other areas around that particular tv station but if he's in there by himself then i'm fairly comfortable that they have got the situation under control. they're going to try to talk to him. talk him out of the situation but i have heard other report that is there's a possibility that this individual is known so more than likely they're dealing with somebody that's psychologically unstable. i mean, to do this in the first place obviously you've got to have some psychological issues. >> not right. >> yeah. it is not right at all. >> brian shelter, back to you. what else is happening there? >> reporter: i'm not sure if we
have live pictures. this man dressed in some sort of suit began to walk outside of the station. on to the street. there are a number of police officers that were following him, proving very quickly. he apparently didn't obey commands. shots fired. we were hearing several rounds of gun fire. i didn't see the individual hit by any of the gun fire but the third or fourth time he was hit and then fell to the ground. now, i have moved further back as have the rest of the crews here in case there's anymore exchange of gun fire. i can tell you that the man, the individual in the lobby area, was struck by something. and then fell to the ground. keep in mind these authorities were told he had a bomb on a vest. very clear threat and began to exit this lobby area, walk out on to the street he did not seem to stop walking and kept walking as the authorities, of course, fully in body armor and all that
trying to pursue him. that is when the shots began to be fired and right now i can't see anything more at the moment. >> brian, do we know if the individual is neutralized or we don't know yet? >> reporter: from what i can tell, when he hit the ground, he was very clearly neutralized. i didn't hear anymore gun fire after that. what we don't know is, of course, what was fired. if and where he was hit and not able to see him or the authorities from the vantage point we have now and even now the reporters here and the news crews crouching behind vehicles as a precautionary stand by mode here. >> okay. keep your distance, please. but just hang tight with me for a second. art, now that we have learned that the individual walked out of the tv station, not obeying command, police functioning under the assumption that the vest has a potential to explode,
what's protocol here? >> well, i mean, at this particular point, could have been a situation suicide by law enforcement. this individual wanted to die. a lot of times we have seen this in the past and they confront police, don't obey the lawful commands and then you hae this type of scenario that occurs. obviously on the scene i think you will have the bomb squad from baltimore pd, atf there, probably the fbi is there. basically, any federal law enforcement and state and local law enforcement that are in the area i'm sure responded to assist the pd with the particular situation. so now, you know, you have to look at how they approach this individual with a possibility of that he was wearing an explosive vest and atf an the bomb squad to try to neutralize that portion of the devices. >> next step, bring in the tactical teams, approach the individual, test what? they have to be looking to see if, in fact, this was an
explosive vest. yes? >> right. obviously, the detonation device wasn't hooked to his hand or anything like that or it would have exploded when he was neutralized at that particular point. now he could be approached by a bomb robot to look to see if the device is actually a real explosive device. but with atf and the eod people there, i'm sure they'll wrap it up fairly quickly, especially since he is neutralized himself at this particular point. >> back to brian stelter outside of the tv station. he is the one breaking all of this news to us. what is happening now? >> reporter: just so you know, brooke, i can see the man laying in the street. not appearing to be moving and we should be clear. we don't know the shots heard, gunshots, bean bags or something else, a flash bang or something. at the moment he is laying in the street and see a sort of white outfit he was wearing. some people speculated a --
strange looking outfit that he was wearing and then a claim that he was wearing this bomb on his vest. that's all i can see at the moment. he is laying empty street here outside the station. >> we are obviously being very, very careful what we show here on live tv. law enforcement on the scene. brian stelter, we'll come back to you. brand by. for now, let's move on and talk politics. signs the republican's establishment cold shoulder is thaw. former speaker john boehner apparently said he would vote for trump as a nominee but as boehner's apparently warming up to trump, he's hurling fire at another man who wants the job. senator ted cruz. boehner said he would not
support cruz as the nominee and he went on from there. he was asked what he thought about the senator from texas and it's the stanford daily reporting that boehner, quote, made a face asked that and then this is the quote. lucifer in the flesh. i have democrat and republican friends and i get along with almost everyone but i've never worked with a more miserable son of a bleep in my life. here's john boehner. here's donald trump after hearing those words. >> if cruz sneezes, just sneezes, his people leave him. believe me. no loyalty. nobody -- who can listen to him? in the senate he's known as a liar. marco rubio, who's a good guy, called him a liar in the debate. remember that? he said you're a liar. i said that's great. when another senator can call a senator a liar, i said now i can do it also. it is great. so we came up with lyin'ted.
>> apostrophe. we get it. dana bash with me now. first of all, where is john boehner been? now boy oh boy, he made a splash with his public appearance. >> reporter: he has. although it seems reading some of the transcript he didn't necessarily expect it to be public. look, he is gone. in retirement. making speeches. writing a book and he is now saying the things more freely that those of us who covered him, especially during his very tumultuous years, he believes and he is not wrong in large part many times because of ted cruz's tactics. you know, it was not a secret how he felt about cruz and using more colorful language. actually, lucifer is maybe a little bit tame compared to the other colorful language that we have heard that he's said about ted cruz in private. now, he is the former house
speaker. before i go on about their relationship, let me play for you what the current house speaker said about ted cruz. >> i have a much better relationship with senator cruz. look. my job is to help unify our party. to take all pieces of the conservative movement and the republican party and help stitch them together, especially after a primary. i have a very good relationship with both of these men. i'm going to keep it this way. >> reporter: so saying the sort of political diplomat, if you will, there. but this is another piece of evidence, brooke, to me that the world is just completely upside down. >> and the reason is because ted cruz, again, was supposed to be the outsider who made establishment republicans like john boehner crazy. not donald trump. and trump is the one who had at least until this point been the one when's been vexing elected republicans and how he can be doing so well because he had been and is tapping into the
anti-washington fervor. and to hear john boehner, for example, say that first of all golfing buddies. i'm sure they knew each other because donald trump talks about the fact that it was his job to be friends with everybody. democrats and republicans. and since he and john boehner have something very real in common, social activity, a sporting event, and that is golf, i'm sure they do know each other. he had tough things to say about donald trump and said he would and could support trump. he didn't say the same thing about ted cruz and gets me back to the initial point and cannot tell you how many times i watched john boehner walk up and down the hallways in the capitol frustrated, completely perplexed and vexed by the fact that he couldn't get his own republican caucus to follow him. and ended up leading them towards a partial government shut down. >> i remember watching you pace
watching boehner pace. >> reporter: exactly. because of ted cruz came over to the house and really stirred things up. >> yeah, he did. >> reporter: that's the genesis of those comments. >> i appreciate it. we'll bring in my panel and the talk through all of this coming up next. also, jeb bush giving a first interview since dropping out of the race. hear what he has to say about donald trump and ted cruz and whether he would ever, ever run again. back in a moment. (man) what i love most about
tempur-pedic mattresses is
that they contour to your body. i just have to lay back in my tempur-pedic and it just kind of forms to my body. that's what i love about it. the tempur-pedic comes up to you and it's like, "hey, there you are!" "hey, there you are!" "i'm going to put you to sleep now." here you go. okay! sleepy time! it keeps us comfortable and asleep at night. can i take a nap now? (vo) change your sleep, change your life, change to tempur-pedic.
welcome back. watching cnn. i'm brooke baldwin. we were just talking about the former speaker of the house john boehner and the slam of ted cruz calling him lucifer in the flesh. but ted cruz wearing that insult, turning it around, wearing it like a badge of honor. here he was. >> he allowed his inner trump to come out. you know, i will say this. if you're wondering who actually has stood up to washington, i think john boehner has made it crystal clear, john boehner in his remarks described donald trump has his texting and golfing buddy. donald trump has been funding john boehner and also funding notary public and harry reid. if you like what john boehner,
nancy pelosi and harry reid have done donald trump is your guy. >> let me bring in cnn's chief political analyst gloer i don't borger, comment they or the tara carter and march gi dannonfetzer. al all-ladies panel. i love it. with reporting of more and more republicans on the hill i think the word is warming to donald trump, do you see this as an emerging -- we had the never trump movement. is it also a never cruz movement, as well? >> i don't think so. i think that, you know, politics is a game where you don't stop fighting until the checkered flag waves and everyone will fight up until the very end. when the tea leaves are being looked at and people are concerned a wind is shifting in the opposite direction than they
wish, you open paths you didn't before. it is not over and with the addition of carly fiorina to ted cruz's ticket, that's a tactical, smart move. they have got a shot in indiana. that's for sure. >> we heard from john boehner talking about a lot of things and not the greatest reception said something asked about hillary clinton, oh, i'm a woman, vote for me. to a negative crowd reaction and then added he'd known her for 25 years, accomplished and smrt and here you have two nights ago trump mentioned the lady considered and now this comment from john boehner. when's going on here? >> well, i think the reality is that now we see a potential situation where we have got two women on the opposite sides of the race and when you take away the war on women theme that we assume will happen with hillary clinton with the existence of
carly fiorina to go right at that and speak to women not buying into that, then you have really evened the playing field and you can call it a woman's card. you can just say now there's more full representation with the addition of carly fiorina. that's for sure. >> okay. turning to you all and, gloria, you know, weigh in on what she just said but listen. john boehner speaking at stanford. no cameras in the room. we have one of these and people are listening. i'm not surprised that this got out. that said, here we are four days before indiana to call ted cruz lucifer, he knows what he is doing, doesn't he? >> exactly. look, john boehner doesn't like ted cruz. dana pointing out earlier, john boehner feels completely betrayed by ted cruz. ted cruz, he believes, was trying to kidnap all the house republicans to go along with a government shutdown and he did.
>> willingly i will say. >> right? behind his become and speaker of the house and this is why people don't like ted cruz on the hill. because they believe he's an opportunist and they believe he led people to allege he knew they would have to jump over and there was no net. boehner resents it to this day, obviously. i have never seen members of congress and you work for ted cruz and like him but i've never seen members of congress this publicly -- >> feel so strongly about someone sitting senator. >> takes it personal. the fact politicians didn't rally around donald trump to a great degree, they're not rallying around ted cruz either. >> but he's taking that and saying, great. >> yeah. political cycle, this is a gift from john boehner reminding everyone in indiana and beyond that ted cruz really was challenging the washington establishment from the inside. he showed leadership. he was working with members of the house and make that coalition that did lead to a
government shutdown and then guys like john boehner, mitch mcconnell, cut out the knees and tanked it. this really gets to the broader problem in the republican party that they are people inside washington in the house and outside who want real change. they want to see republicans fighting for their values. and so that's what they were doing and gop leadership didn't listen, didn't listen and now deal with donald trump. >> i want to pivot to democrats and john boehner and how you read this. john boehner speculated of surprises closer to philadelphia and the democratic convention if hillary's e-mails are a bigger thing. he said don't be shocked if two weeks before the convention, here's joe biden parachuting in and barack obama fanning the flames to make it all happen. >> huh? >> what is he saying? >> huh? >> when? >> i'm not sure i really know. first of all, barack obama is a big hillary clinton fan.
although he tried to stay neutral when joe biden was thinking about running and he's tried to stay neutral with bernie sanders and hillary clinton. it's very clear he likes hillary clinton. joe biden is not in the race and ever something to occur, why wouldn't the party turn to bernie sanders? bernie sanders has got millions of votes. joe biden didn't participate. obama would like biden better than bernie sanders. if he had a choice because he wants to save health care. and bernie sanders wants single payer. doesn't like obamacare. i think this is kind of sort of something that john boehner playing out in his mind that is not within the realm of our reality at this point. >> okay. gloria, amanda, thank you both so much and marjorie, as well. now first on cnn, the first interview since dropping out of the race, jeb bush weighs in on ted cruz's choice in carly fiorina as a running mate and

let's talk now about a man that wanted to be president. he dropped out before the florida primary. jeb bush. now talking for the first time since dropping out and in an interview with a special correspondent he shared what he makes of carly fiorina as ted cruz's running mate choice. are. >> picking a candidate that's talented, tough, you know, she takes on trump really well i
think and she takes on hillary clinton very well, as well, someone with a proven record and who's been vetted as a candidate, i thought was a smart move by ted cruz. >> you didn't think that donald trump was ready to be president. but if he is the nominee, apart from whatever else you think might happen with, whether he would beat hillary or not, will you support him? >> i don't think he's a serious person. >> you haven't changed your mind. >> no. i have seen nothing, the speech, you know, recent speech about foreign policy was -- you can't -- i don't know which donald trump to believe. the one that read from a tell prompter, a speech that was inside the lines, or the one that wants to build a wall and make mexico pay for it. the idea that a president should be unpredictable is not really the way history has been written. the successful presidents have been clear about their vision.
have laid out the agenda. on foreign policy and the friends know we have their become and enemies fear us and consistency by american leadership. >> let's react with tim naftali. now professor at nyu. author of "george h.w. bush: the american president series." a pleasure to have you on. trump and foreign policy and feel free talking about unpredictability and presidents shouldn't go hantd d in hand. what did you make of his comments? >> unpredictability is a way to say i haven't figured it out. you need someone with no background of foreign policy and elected official, what are the -- what's their gut reactions? >> presidents don't have -- >> don't have it. you don't get the chair usually -- chairman of the senate foreign relations committee president. a thing about it is to know
their gut and what jeb bush was saying was, our knowledge of his gut, his gut is the wall. his gut is bullying china. that's his gut. the new language, the new rhetoric, might not be his language. what i think bush effectively is saying, which is president trump? the tell prompter trump or the man on the stage saying i'm not a creature of pundits, i'm not a creature of the establishment. i'm the real trump. >> will the real donald trump please stand up what jeb and i know many others are asking. also, though, tonight, looking at you because we've been playing this phenomenal '80s series. tonight talking ronald reagan, the cold war. here's a clip. >> reagan was being accused already of getting soft on communism and he hadn't forgotten the problems we still had. europe is still divided. there was still a berlin wall. >> there is one sign the soviets
can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of freedom and peace. mr. gorbachev, open this gate. mr. gorbachev, tear down this wall. >> it was perfect. it was beautiful. he had to insist on keeping it in the speech. >> hmm. so there's reagan. you know, on donald trump, make america great, that was ray again's. right? >> yes. >> that was reagan's. how would donald trump handle such a situation? >> well, i don't yet know. >> we don't. let's be tear. >> the thing of reagan and why the show is a great reminder of greatness in a president is that ronald reagan changed his mind. ronald reagan came to office with a certain understanding of the soviets. and by the end of the time in office, he said, that was another soviet union.
gorbachev's soviet union is not the evil empire anymore. now, that showed that he was smart enough, flexible enough and savvy enough to get information and change some of his views and all of his tactics. so the story of the '80s and the cold war is that the both soviets and americans start by totally misunderstanding each other and completely fearing each other and by the end they're working together. and the reasons why i think have a lot to do with two individuals. ronald reagan and mikhail gorbachev. would donald trump have the flexibility of mind and nimbleness to switch like that with new intelligence and information changed the world that he started with as president? i don't know. and that's the key and that's what he has to prove as he becomes more and more likely the standard bearer of the republican party. not just for democrats or independents but for republicans. he has to prove that his sense of what it means to be president and what it means to be
commander in chief allows for the flexibility and the nimbleness to deal with it, the morphing of the threat. the threat changes. the threat for reagan changes and comes into office thinking the soviets are the source of all terrorism. they did assist terrorists and iran was the bigger state sponsor of terrorism and he had to nimble enough to switch over to the new threat. can trump do it? i don't know yet. >> we look back tonight and tune in to the '80s later on this evening. tim, thank you very, very much. only here on cnn. thank you. >> thanks. next, a judge orders the search warrant for prince's home sealed. not before we learn that the star had prescription painkillers with him when he died on him finding him and in the minnesota home. reaction from radio host dan nn boducci coming up.

cnn is learning a bit more about prince's death one week ago today. we now know that the music icon carrying prescription pain medications, specifically opioids, when he was found dead in his paisley park studio in the elevator. law enforcement source also tells cnn more medication found inside of his home. now the dea, they join the investigation. also new details on that health scare that forced the music icon to make an emergency plane landing. investigators believe it was because of a bad reaction to pain medication. they treated an unresponsive prince for a potential overdose and then six days later at the
age of 57 prince died. joining me now radio show host in seattle, danny bonaduce. nice to see you again. >> nice to see you. thank you for having me. >> so listen. again. there's a lot we don't know. facts still very scarce but when you hear all about this, about the drugs found on him and the house, the unresponsiveness and plane, what does your gut tell you? >> my gut tells me a lot. i don't think that -- i think a lot of people because prince is famous, because he's interesting, he is quirky. it's automatically a drug overdose but did you know that 1 in 20 americans over the age of 12 took open yaits for amusement? it wouldn't shock me. i've seen him recently, tv an arena, mind you, but the man doesn't move like he's littered with ownershpiates on that, ext
strength vicadin, you start to move kind of slow. i saw no telltale signs of that with prince. >> you saw him -- >> as sharp as ever. >> two weeks ago in new york city? >> no. i'm sorry. last year in chicago. >> so when you saw him -- just a year ago. how -- he was rocking and rolling on the stage. >> nobody jumps around like this guy. he's -- prince is so amazing and almost every aspect and he jumped around. you know what? painkillers, that's why they dangerous. they really do work. you can mask the pain and just the speed of the man moving around led me to believe and take the assumption he was not wired down and weighted down with opiates. >> you said you have experience with vicadin. you have been open about your story. i was talking to someone last hour and telling me they can be anything from oxycontin, percocet. have you taken those? >> oh, by -- like breakfast
cereal. that's the thing with those things. my particular area would be vicadin. they're the same pill, oxycontin and basically the same and the problem is the tolerance. if you start taking, say, percocet alleged that prince had in the system and the pocket, if you start taking one tomasing the pain on monday, a week from monday you're taking four and then month 20 and that's not a big exaggeration at all. i have a friend, big famous tv star, you've interviewed him right here -- >> yeah. >> a big drug problem and he took 55 extra strength vicadin a day. >> whoa! >> i didn't believe him. i happen to run into dr. drew and i said could that guy possibly take 55? he said i have a patient right now taking 110. every single day. and you don't want to do that. it has side effects on your body. they build up so fast. they stop working for you quicker than everything. if i did vicadin today i need twice the amount next week.
if i did cocaine now and again next month, same amount same effect. ownership yots -- not that cocaine isn't dangerous. but the doctors give them to you you oo i i had knee surgery at 18 and took a percocet. i swear i took an elephant in my bed and i said enough. >> that's the difference. that's the difference between us. i saw the elephant in my bed and went, i'll take more of those. >> i was like, enough! final question. how did you realize you needed help? >> you know, luckily, for me, you mentioned in my introduction and i was grateful for it, i'm open and honest. the reason i became so open and honest, i was getting caught. people saying, people can tell you're on drugs. people can see that you drink too much and then final one day i listened to my reason and my body begging me to stop and
sought help and that's not easy. about five times before it worked for me. >> how many years has it been? >> stone cold sober off everything and its brother, five years now. >> hmm. good for you. danny, always a pleasure. thank you, thank you, thank you. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> bye. next, the u.s. hinting who may have launched a horrify attack on a hospital in syria. children among the dozens dead there, as well as one of the country's last remaining media trirns. we'll talk live to the doctors without borders manager responsible for that part of syria. stay here. [beekeeper] from bees to business expenses,
children and doctors buried under rubble. a frenzy as people dragging out survivors, bodies here. the images you're looking at, this is a hospital. at least 50 people killed and this is the aftermath of an air strike in syria. we're told includes now two doctors. some of them -- the last remaining medpeed pediatricians all of aleppo. allegedly in a rebel held
neighborhood. still unclear who's behind the strike. the hospital supported by doctors without border. pablo marco is with me now and an operations manager for the middle east. responsible for their work in northern syria's aleppo region. welcome, pablo. >> thank you very much. >> so, russia says its planes weren't flying in the area. claims to have information alleging a u.s.-led coalition plane was. the u.s. denying that. do you have more information? >> well, what we know is how this attack happened. this can give us some hints about it. what we know is that an attack happened with 200 bombs that fell in buildings close to hospital. provoking already a several wounded and killed people and then a few minutes after when all these wounded people were taken to hospital and all the relatives were in the greats trying to get information, the
bomb fell at the gate of the hospital. and that's what caused the massive number of killed people. so we can't assert who's responsible for the attack but we know it's a syrian government that's using these barrel bombs in the past and that in addition to these, the syrian government stated in the last days willing to take over aleppo and the offensive is coming. >> this is a children's hospital. so how many children were affected? >> so we don't know exactly how many children. we spoke with a director of the hospital yesterday, couple of hours ago. he told us that there were at least 50 people killed and that there were still quite a big number of bodies in the rubble. >> and pediatricians, >> yes. exactly. we know also that at least six
staff of the hospital were killed in the attack. another doctor, two nurses and two staff at the hospital. at least. and he was one of the last that was still available in the city. we need to see that at least 95% of the doctors that live in aleppo have either left or have been killed in the attacks. >> okay. final question, we have learned the pentagon plans to announce tomorrow that up to 16 members of the military will be disciplined for their role in the hospital last october in kunduz in afghanistan killing 42 people. two u.s. officials say none of the personnel involved are expected to face criminal charges and a top commander is likely to be fired. your response? >> well, i think that we just need to remember that since the
beginning we have asked for an independent investigation to really understand and to make clear what happened and, unfortunately, despite the fact that the u.s. has had an internal investigation, this independent investigation has to happen yet and we keep asking for it. >> pablo marco, thank you. >> thank you. still ahead here, an 8-year-old girl who captured the attention of the president of the united states. her letter from flint, michigan, about the toxic water did get a response from president obama himself. we'll talk to her. she's known as little miss flint and her mom, next. 98,352 what's that?
